The staff were friendly and showed us promptly to the spa area so that we could get straight into relaxing. The ladies working in the spa were even friendlier and we were given a thorough tour of the facilities after filling in a quick health questionnaire and after being served a welcome drink.
I'd heard that this particular spa was award winning and after our tour I could see why - the spa had a lot to offer! Asides from offering a true taste of Thailand through means of Thai pyjamas to wear around the spa (as well as a robe and pool shoes), there were traditional Thai treatments and a Thai restaurant which served the most wonderful food. And then there were all the little touches around the place such as Thai-inspired ornaments and water features that just added to the Thai experience.
There was a large hydrotherapy pool, an ozone swimming pool, a herbal sauna, a crystal steam room, a laconicum, a tepidarium, amazing experience showers and health showers and even relaxation areas where you could get complimentary refreshments. The SenSpa offered it all.
As Adam and I are vegetarian, I can only speak from a vegetarians point of view. And us veggies are at Careys Manor and Senspa totally catered for! There are so many options at both lunch and dinner. We ate in The Zen Garden for lunch and had an absolutely lovely Thai meal and for dinner and breakfast we ate in The Manor Restaurant, where I found the prices were perhaps a bit high (though this was to be expected in a spa and manor hotel like we were in) but that as a vegetarian we were well catered for.
The staff at dinner were super-friendly yet again. Our waiter Fernando was really professional with a good sense of humour and all the tables were brought a little something to keep us going whilst dinner cooked, this was with compliments from the chef. Everyone was also kindly provided with different types of breads as we waited for our dinners to cook - this was a lovely touch.
THE ZEN GARDEN
We really really enjoyed our stay at Careys Manor & Senspa. We left feeling totally relaxed and refreshed, it was a lovely break for us as a couple too. Thank you to Careys Manor & Senspa for the wonderful stay and a big thank you to Ethans Grandma, Grandpop and Auntie for taking care of Ethan whilst we took time to reset.

We've just got a few more things to do now in his room. We need to put some safety locks on the drawers (we'll be using Lindam for this, as we're huge fans of their products.) We also need to put his curtain hooks on and a new door. But apart from that we're pretty much there.
What do you think to Ethans bedroom?
